Correctional Services said that “matters are under control” at Johannesburg’s Sun City Prison on Wed.
Black Leopards have put Jabulane Maluleke, Ephraim Tjihonge, Eric Ramavharele, Kaizer Montsi and Mandla Masaka on transfer.
Club brand manager Tshifhiwa Thidiela said Maritzburg United and Bloemfontein Celtic have enquired about of Maluleke, who was once linked to Orlando Pirates.
"All the players have been put on the market and any team that wants them must fork out a certain amount," said Thidiela.
Thidiela said they will replace the transfer-listed players with those coming from their development team Phungu United, who are campaigning in the Limpopo Castle Regional League.
Leopards, who lost 2-1 to Jomo Cosmos at the weekend, are fifth in the National First Division inland stream with 15 points from 16 games.
Thidiela is nevertheless optimistic that they will be among the teams to take part in the playoffs for promotion.
"The points different is not that much and we are sure to regroup," he said.
